We have partnered with local chefs to hold suppers here in the orchard! Starting May 5th until October 16th a different local chef will create a multi-course supper using mainly ingredients from local farms and our orchard.
What has changed due to Covid?
Our staff will be wearing face masks whenever we will be in close contact with customers, such as serving plates. We have hand sanitizer on hand for our customers to use, and we will be sanitizing surfaces regularly throughout the event. Groups will be seated apart from other groups.
What happens at the Supper?
Doors open at 5:30, and supper begins at 6:30. We start you off on our outdoor patio(weather permitting) where you can enjoy a glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage, and enjoy the outdoors and beautiful view of the valley. 20 minutes before the supper begins, we bring you into the winery and take you to your assigned seats. Sylvia briefly discusses the history of the orchard, and introduces the chef(s) for the evening. The chef(s) discuss what is on the menu, and proceed with serving the 1st course. In between courses, Dean takes you on a approx 30 minute tour of the orchard(weather permitting) to show many of the fruits we grow, and unique ways we grow them.
How long is the evening?
Typically the evening ends around 8:30-9:00pm, depending on the number of customers attending.
Are dietary restrictions taken into account for the meal?
Yes, the chefs can accommodate most dietary restrictions(Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten, allergies, etc.) if given a few days notice to prepare.
Is the Menu for the evening available before reserving?
No, it is difficult for the chefs to know exactly what will be on the menu until the date gets closer. They use a lot of local ingredients, and the supply of these ingredients are not always consistant.
What are the costs?
The Supper costs $70/person. Individual glasses of wine(5 oz glass) is $7, and non-alcoholic beverages (Cherry Spritzer/Coffee) are available for $3.50. Our wine pairing option(Each course is paired with 2oz of one of our wines) is $25.
When will the schedule be released so I can see which chefs are coming on which dates?
We typically have a preliminary schedule in late March/early April, and will be posted on our Events page.
What happens if I have to cancel my reservation?
If you can let us know as soon as possible so that we can have time to try to resell the tickets, it would be appreciated. We are at this time not charging the normal cancellation fee of $40/person due to the instability during this time with Covid.
How many seats are available for each Supper?
48 is our typical available seats, and group sizes are can be anywhere from 1 person to 48. Current Covid rules have all groups seated apart.
